Sparrows (Two Photographs)

Someone commented on one of my photographs that it was nice not to see a bird on a tree branch. I could sympathize with this if it were not for the fact that birds are naturally in flight, on a branch or on the ground. Even more frustrating they tend to position themselves the wrong way and just as you get them in focus they fly off. This is the reality of bird photography and why it’s a wonderful challenge.

  3. Sparrows are normally ground-oriented, so having the blue-hued branch is wonderful. Great photo.

  4. A Really Small Farm

    I saw a sparrow this morning very much like this one (no idea as to species) on a fence rail so seeing your photo was a nice surprise

    Like the blue colors of the spruce needles.

    Beautiful photos, but is that not a Female red-winged Blackbird? http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/PHOTO/LARGE/red_winged_blackbird_9.jpg

        Glad to help. I just photographed the female red-wing blackbird so I was quick to see the resemblance.
